Your appeal:

I’ve bombed the Dropship, there’s no denying that - a clear act of EORG on my part, since I found it funny, and it was the last round of the day for me. What bugs me out is the “dc’d and evaded” part of the note, which extends the ban to a week. I did not leave the game to evade the ban, I left because I saw the EORG ban in the text messages, thought “yeah, as expected”, and left. The admin did not reach out to me before applying the EORG ban, so I thought that was the end of it.

I’m not an EORG-er, I just felt like having the suicide monkeys we’ve spent the round making blow up would be a funny and satisfying way to end a round which went by quite smoothly. I would love to play the game in the coming week, and I feel as if the extension from 3 hours to 7 days was unjustified. I don’t mind keeping the note of the EORG either, since I do not intend on being a repeat offender.


Allow me to start with the most important part of this ban:

“Because it’s funny” and “It’s my last round” is a pretty malicious excuse to just drop what you’re doing to go grief 5+ people at the end of the round in a safe part of the ship that isn’t even planetside.

What happened here is Mistermoon applied EORG without checking, given the sheer volume of logs this action produced I did decide to come check out what was going on as it felt like something more malicious than people shooting each other in caves for funsies. And as seen in this post here, my assumption was correct. This was not basic EORG, this was killing multiple marines deliberately because, quote, “I found it funny.”

EORG does not require us to.

and yet…

You’re playing in a deliberately malicious way that clearly shows that you value your own fun over other players being able to play.

A brief explanation on the dc/evade, I was looking at extending the ban beyond 7 days (Bear in mind that mass murder griefs on the Almayer typically turns into 30 days or even permas depending on circumstances. When I was applying further notes on the ban, Moon hit you with the 3hr EORG, I extended it given the circumstances. If it would make you feel better I’ll edit the note to remove the DC’d and evade portion, but I extremely confident given your comments here, that a 7 day is appropriate for your actions.

EORG is for people being a bit goofy after the round is over. This goes well above and beyond that, and we aren’t going to cultivate the kind of player-base who finds killing as many of their own side as possible “funny.”

The ban stands, you know what you did was wrong. Denied.
